Prompt: For this milestone, due in Module Three, you will prepare a draft of the literature review due as part of your final research investigation using the three articles for your track that you selected in Module One. Rather than following the format of a typical lengthier APA literature review, you will instead prepare three shorter, adapted, individual literature reviews (one for each provided article). Each literature review should be one page in length. The final literature review will consist of a total of five literature reviews (based on the three articles provided in your track and two more articles found and selected by you). The final version of the literature review will be submitted in Module Seven as part of Final Project I. The final project is meant for you to propose a hypothetical study. You are not and should not be conducting human subjects research for this project. It is not necessary for the purposes of this assignment. All human subjects research requires written approval from the SNHU COCE Institutional Review Board in order to protect the welfare and ensure ethical treatment of the subjects.
First, read and review the three provided articles for your track. Next, using the questions presented in the Module Two literature review practice journal assignment as a guide, you will draft three literature reviews of the articles provided in your track. The questions are provided here for your convenience:
What is the title of the article? Provide a citation for the article in APA format. What is the purpose of the article? What is the hypothesis of the study? In other words, what claims do the authors make in the article? What variables (factors) are being looked at as an influence on personality? If these variables or the relationship between these variables have been studied before, what have other studies found? This shows historical significance. What type of research design is used in the study? Do you think the research in this article was conducted in an ethical manner? Why or why not?
Use the Literature Review Template to complete this task. Refer to the Literature Review Example to assist you.
Also: Consult the sections of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association that cover literature reviews: Section 1.02, Literature Reviews; Section 2.01, T itle; Section 2.02, Author’s Name and Institutional Affiliation; and Section 2.05, Introduction.
Refer also to the tutorials at the Smarthinking Online Tutoring Service to assist you in your writing and to the webpage SNHU Online Writing Center for proper APA formatting of sources.
The following elements must be addressed (as also outlined in the Literature Review section of the Final Project I Guidelines and Rubric document):
I. Literature Review: In this part of the assessment, you will analyze foundational research presented in the course for how the field of personality psychology has changed over time, how researchers have designed research to study personality, and how issues of ethics have been addressed historically in the field.
A. Summarize the claims made by the authors of the foundational research presented in the course regarding how personality develops. In other words, what claims are made by the research about how human personality develops? B. Summarize the claims made by the authors of the foundational research presented in the course regarding how personality is assessed. In other words, what claims are made by the research about how personality has been determined by assessments? C. Explain how the view of personality has evolved over the history of personality psychology. Be sure to support with examples from research to support your claim. D. Explain the conclusions you can reach about research in personality psychology. In other words, explain what we know about personality, based on your review of the research presented in the course. Be sure to support your analysis with examples from research to support your claim. E. Describe the specific research designs used in the foundational research presented in the course used to address research questions. For example, what were the specific methods used to address their research question? What type of research design was used? F. Explain how research designs were used by authors to conduct research in personality psychology. In other words, how did the research designs used by researchers help in conducting research regarding personality psychology? G. Discuss how issues of ethics have been addressed in the foundational research presented in the course. For example, how did the authors inform the participants of what the experiment would entail? How did the authors account for any potential risks to participants associated with the study? H. Discuss how issues of ethics in personality psychology have been viewed historically. In other words, how have issues of ethics in the field been viewed over time? Has this view changed as the field has progressed? Be sure to support your response with examples from research to support your claims.
Guidelines for Submission: Your literature review draft must be submitted with double spacing, 12-point T imes New Roman font, one-inch margins, and discipline-appropriate citations in APA format. Each of the three literature reviews should be one page in length
